Of course they would. As Malaysia’s deputy prime minister himself pointed out, it is the duty of all Muslims everywhere to advocate and push for shariah, and by extension hudud laws. Any infidels who are still afraid of said laws are, at the very least, misguided and likely Islamophobic as well. Following up on this story; “PAS to continue to champion hudud law, says president”, by Ian McIntyre and S. Arulldas, The Star, 2 October 2011:
KEPALA BATAS: PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang has defended his party”s firm stance on adopting hudud law, saying it is a law that should not be questioned.
He blamed [Malaysia’s ruling party] Umno for causing non-Muslims to be confused and afraid of the law.
“To implement hudud law has always been a struggle in PAS. We will continue to campaign for it,” he said when opening the one-day PAS 60th anniversary celebration at the Millennium Hall here yesterday.
Later at a press conference, PAS spiritual adviser Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat said he would pray that the hudud and qisas jurisprudence law would be adopted in the country eventually although there was currently strong opposition from [Chinese-Malaysian Democratic Action Party or DAP].
He also claimed DAP had agreed in principle to the hudud legislation, which was passed in Kelantan and Terengganu in 1993 and 2003 respectively, but wanted its adoption to be based on the Federal Constitution.
Nik Abdul Aziz vowed that he would pray for Pakatan Rakyat to take over the Federal Government with two-thirds majority in the next general election so that the constitution could be amended to incorporate hudud and qisas into the Syariah court system.
For hudud and qisas to be adopted at the state level, the Federal Constitution must be amended.
Nik Abdul Aziz, who is Kelantan Mentri Besar, said he was surprised that people could accept the death penalty yet oppose hudud.
“There is no death sentence in hudud. It is just preventative and educational. Our [current] death penalty law [in Malaysia] is cruel, unlike hudud,” he said.
Well, if cutting off hands and murdering apostates is ‘preventative and educational’, then non-violent websites like Jihad Watch must be also considered by Muslims and their friends to be ‘preventative and educational’.
